Former Senate president settles complaint

Former state Senate President Peter Bragdon has agreed to resolve a complaint about possible conflicts of interest in his taking a $180,000 job with a quasi-government organization.

Earlier this month, New Hampshire’s Legislative Ethics Committee offered Bragdon a letter of caution, outlining steps he must agree to take to avoid a formal hearing. The letter stipulated that Bragdon must not participate in legislative or regulatory activities affecting his employer, the HealthTrust.

The Telegraph reported Bragdon signed the letter yesterday.

The Milford Republican took the job with the former Local Government Center in August and stepped down as Senate president in September after continued criticism from Democrats about potential conflicts of interest. He kept his Senate seat.

Just wonder what other conflicts of interest this Peter might be hiding. Typical politician. Run for office to increase your net worth. Can anyone name a member of either house of the US Congress that retired, was convicted of a crime or was force to resign (other than Sen. Rudman) that didn't increase his net worth by hundreds of thousands of dollars and / or go work as a lobbyist to earn thousands more? And they have the gall to call themselves public servants!
